According to Buddha

Familiarity with Nature has bred contempt for her ultimate secrets; our relation with her is one of practical business. We tease her, so to speak, to discover the ways in which she may be forced to serve our purposes; we make use of her energies, whose Source yet remains unknown.

all around me are familiar faces
worn out places, worn out faces
bright and early for their daily races
going nowhere, going nowhere

look right through me, look right through me

downtown ~ Edmonton, Alberta ~ February ~ 2018

  1. Wonderful compositions, Hedy.

  2. fascinating, but I’ve never felt ‘contempt’ for any of nature’s secrets, only intense curiosity

    • makes sense especially once it’s been said and then it’s not a secret anymore…we do a lot and yes i’m with you curiosité insatiable 😀 smiles and joy for a happy day Eddie 😀

  3. “We gotta get out of this place, if it’s the last thing we ever do.” — Eric Burden/The Animals

  4. A bit of fun street photography. Nicely done, Hedy. Cheers!

  5. I love your photos, but also love your quotes, Hedy! These images you’ve caught seem so ephemeral, so unplanned and in a way, unexpected. Who could have known such things would be? And where have they gone? Each flashing scrape of connection suggests that unknown Source, as if the entire universe has been signed anonymously… Is that emptiness?

    Peace
    Michael

    • dear Michael i appreciate you saying…it’s a mad world in many ways…i am grateful i can walk in the woods and be in quiet sunshine 😀 many smiles ~ hedy 🙂

  6. beautifully you’ve captured
    them going nowhere
    & well dressed for it 🙂

  7. This is what it has come to making nature suit us instead of respecting Mother Nature and living with her. It shall come to pass we finally will go back to respecting her and each other. I only hope I am still around. Wonderful street captures Hedy.

  8. the lyrics of ‘mad world’ go hand in hand with you wonderful images… …there is nothing to add.. …you said already everything with this images. Great!

  9. I can feel the photos. Great shoots.

  10. I do love the idea expressed in your Buddha quotation here. Science is much more humble than most of us think it is. It is definitely an unscientific approach if we think science can explain all. Whenever science explains a fact of nature, it also reveals new worlds to be explored and tried by our faculties of understanding. This is a well of realities that will never run dry.

    PS.
    Why can’t I make a link of my blog title?

    • yes Ellington….and i imagine a different world…i’m trained as a qualitative researcher…and i trouble facts….and i like what you say about a well of realities that will never run dry…that makes sense to me 🙂 my blog titles are in my https://sloppybuddhist.com/define/

      i have to check your blog and Gravatar…i will do this later now i run out ~ smiles and thank you for your thoughtful comments i appreciate them ~ smiles hedy 😀

  11. Dark moods, going to the streets. Where do we long?

  12. That mid-winter darkness….well done. 🙂

  13. Dark as a January light. Yes. We gotta get out of this place… 😉

  14. Just watched/listened the Animals. (My girl you’re so young and pretty…)
    And was drawn to Cream’s “sunshine of your love”… 🙂
